Fior Gelato

One of the only companies we approached that understood what we were looking for and priced it fairly. Easy to work with and job well done!

Mission Wholesale Foods

I can't say enough good things about this company! I had a tight budget for this project & prefer to do most of the work myself, but sometimes you need some help from the pros. Not only were they able to work within my budget, but they completed the project quickly and on time. Did I mention, they always answer the phones when you call too!!

I will definitely be using them in the future!

Thanks Again


I worked with AJ, Zach, and Kelly at the Hauser Design Group and would definitely recommend. I was in the middle--knowing how to do a lot of stuff myself, but still a rookie and wanting help navigating my Shopify setup and getting me unstuck. The Hauser team was great--from assisting with code, SEO evaluation of potential themes, and even helping me name the company. They are great peeps with a well rounded skillset. Will use again!

Friendly Fundraising Inc

They recently completed a project for me very quickly and within the budget. Just getting ready to start on another project with them. Very happy!


We asked the Hauser Group to perform an SEO report on our site and we were blown away by the results! AJ's report was so comprehensive, covering all of the aspects of our site where we suspected we had some issues. We can't wait to implement the changes he suggested to get our site operating at full speed?

CB Fundraising Diner

Communication was excellent, all work was completed as agreed upon and the whole process was done in a very professional manner. I have already booked another job to be completed by the Hauser Design Group.

CO2 Meter

I found the Hauser Design Group through the Shopify Experts, and I’m glad I did. All the positive reviews I read sounded too good to be true, but they were right.

Our company CO2Meter, Inc. first hired them to do a small change to our old Shopify site. They were quick and reasonably priced. But the big challenge came when we decided to do a full website redesign. After reading proposals from half a dozen other companies, we realized Hauser was the only one who took the time to understand our requirements.

AJ and his team are Shopify experts. Everything we wanted to do was thought out with the Shopify strengths and weaknesses in mind. In the end, everyone from our President and CEO to the customer support team is pleased with our new website. We still have more changes to make, but I’m 100% confident AJ will take care of us.


The Hauser Design Group are professionals you can rely on!

I needed some custom coding done on a web store. AJ and crew delivered. I was expecting the project to commence on a Monday and as I was walking a client through the problem area so they would understand the issue, it was fixed. And that was the same Monday. Excellent job and very timely. Now I've got a couple more jobs for them.

Caiman Distribution

The migration from Magento to Shopify is complete and everything went off without a hitch. Thank you for your time and expertise with all of this - it could not have gone more smoothly. We were extremely worried before we started this project because of all the variables, but know that we appreciate all the time your team took on the phone with us, and all of the email updates.

revolve furnishings - modern furniture for home and office

AJ and the team did a quick and efficient tweak to our website. They were friendly and easy to work with. I will definitely contact them again if I'm in over my head!
Thanks for the rescue guys! -Leslie

Infinity Stamps

One of the few Shopify Experts that reached out to me almost immediately after I asked for help. Within a few days we had come up with a solution and implemented it. I'm very happy with the result and their professionalism. Highly recommend.

TruSelf Organics

AJ and his team at the Hauser Design Group are awesome to work with. They listen to what we want accomplished to our site, provide some great advice/thoughts and implement the work in line with the estimated timeframe. Great communication back and forth on status and expectations make for a good relationship. Our confidence in The Hauser Design Group in both getting the work done in the required time as well as the quality of work done (to our expectations) makes one less worry on our side.

Fey & CO.

AJ, Kelly and their team did an incredible job putting our site together. They were great to work with and approached the project with an ability to understand what we were looking for and to figure out the best way to achieve it. They communicated well and followed up consistently. I look forward to continue working with them in the future and would highly recommend them. Thank you for a job well done! Tom Fey

AJ and the group are awesome. They took care of my every need and I will continue to use them on an ongoing basis. Perfect work!

Dallas Light Bulb

Dallas Light Bulb was referred to The Hauser Design Group by Shopify. "Right off the bat" after speaking with AJ we knew that we picked the right company to take on our website design project. The fact that AJ and his team were experts with the platform we were working with was a plus, but more importantly its the personal touch and care that The Hauser Design Group puts into the relationship. The Hauser Design Group is a pleasure to work with and they have a top notch design team that is ready to take on any task! We are customers for life.

Aquarium Overload

The report I ordered brought a lot of things into perspective that I was unaware of. Really glad that we decided to partner with the Hauser Group on this stuff - we'll be doing more in the near future.

The 25-Point SEO Report was better than expected - and we will be doing additional work with The HDG as a result. Recommended.


Did everything we asked by the deadline we agreed on while staying under our budget. Awesome. Thanks guys!

Still working together but got Coupon Carrier set up and working after my previous developer flaked out. Nice to have found a stable company to work with on my shop.

Tech N Trenz

Work was done on time and within the quoted budget. Thank you.

Cocoa + Co.

AJ was willing to approach the project in a way that perfectly fit my needs and budget though it was not their normal scope. His advice was clear, actionable and, I believe, will prove invaluable.


Very happy - worked with AJ & the team for several hours in a consulting capacity to help me get my store more on track with in-house SEO best practices and started to develop a long-term marketing plan as well that we will be carrying out with the help of The HDG.

The 25-Point SEO Report was well worth the time and money. After delivery I immediately scheduled another round of work based on the information provided and will continue to work with The Hauser Design Group moving forward!

Flory & Black

Brilliant thank you – all looks great!

Confluent Medical Technologies

You guys were super helpful, resourceful and have satisfactorily met our needs. Should we have any issues as we continue to test products, we will let you know. The invoice I received was for what we were quoted - which is great. It was wonderful working with you and we will keep you in mind if we need further customization on our web shop.

CO2 Meter

We needed a homepage image carousel. The Hauser Design Group made the project fast, simple, and at a fair price. Quick communication with AJ who oversaw development. I would use them again.

Kidz Outfitters

We finally unveiled our store yesterday and now I'm going to focus back on our systems. I did try the importing of inventory and it worked like magic! Thanks again!

TL's Trophies & Collectibles

Stayed under the price I was originally quoted even though we ran into some hurdles along the way and the project took longer than expected.

Royal Order

Hired them more than once. You should do so as well, with confidence.

Charleston Limewash

After some negative experience with our previous web designer, AJ and his team helped Charleston Limewash get back on track quickly and effectively. AJ was professional and prompt in his communication with me; I never felt like our business was forgotten or pushed aside to make room for bigger clients. The work they did to our site is fantastic. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again in the future. Thank you Hauser Design!

Top Cut Breaks

We had more than a 5 star experience with The Hauser Design Group. They responded quickly to our initial request and from there, they continued to impress us and gain our confidence. Our first project was completed on time and EXACTLY how we wanted it. It made our lives, our shop and our customers so happy. We will be using them again for another project immediately. Thank you to The Hauser Design Group for being such an incredible group of people.

The Food Group

AJ and his team were very easy to work with. They asked great questions to help me figure out what I truly needed, completed work quickly and on time, and made a few extra edits when I realized I needed something else included. I will definitely use them again for my shop.


These guys are the best. they give accurate quotes before doing the work. They took time to thoroughly understand what we needed before starting updates to our site. They do the hired work in a timely manner. They are also knowledgeable about the shopify platform. This is our go to company for updates and changes to our shopify store. Special thank you to AJ and Jake!


Knowledgeble, Professional and reasonable. Will be using in the future.

Es La Vida

The Hauser Design Group is such a delight to work with. I have worked with them again and again this past year.

With all the Shopify Experts out there and all the problems you can face dealing with the intricacies of coding on Shopify, it is very difficult to find someone who can understand your problems and solve them effectively and efficiently.

I had a problem I was trying to fix for a few months now and I needed major help. Once I contacted The Hauser Design Group, they had a few questions to clarify the problem and once that was clear, the job was done exactly as expected in a timely manner.

They were such a joy to work with and I had absolutely no problems at all. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is dealing with some backend developing problems because it is very apparent to me that they know exactly what they are doing.

Thank you! I will definitely go back to them again if I have any problems with my shop.

The Reel Shot

Everything looks good. That page layout should work out awesome. Thanks very much for your help on this!


Five stars.

TRO Custom Musky Shop

Did the job the were hired to do in a very timely manner

DCB Rocks

AJ and his crew are remarkable. I asked him for SEO help and ended up with a beautifully designed kick-ass new logo, and a dynamite website that shows right up on the search engines. The Hauser group focuses on mobile first development and works up so it is a pleasure to use on my phone, I get good mobile traffic and sales and Google likes me. What could be better?

What did I like about these guys?

AJ has a goofy sense of humor and is a pleasure to work with. He does what he says he will when he says he will. He LISTENS to what I want and does his best to give it to me. He and Jake, who I also worked with, are patient and respectful no matter how I pushed to get exactly what I wanted. And I got it. The site rocks.

Their process begins with the completion of a detailed questionnaire. Take it seriously. It not only helped them know what I was looking for and what my style and preferences were, but it helped me clarify exactly what I wanted. Incredibly well put together questionnaire and incredibly helpful.

On the basis of that work, AJ and I were able to have some good back and forth on what I was looking for and he was willing to step outside his comfort zone to make


SO HAPPY!! Thank you so very much! :-)

I understand I have been a little needy LOL... BUT FOR NOW... SPORTEEZER is PERFECT!

Bettina's Collection

Everything is working perfectly now - thank you for your diligence in returning my emails - your response time was excellent and I am very happy with the website options!!

Homeless Pets Foundation Store

Very prompt communication and understood what I needed done without too much explanation. We are still tweeking the project, but I'm sure it will be exactly what I want when it's completed!

ASC Building Supplies

The calculator looks great thank you - we are very pleased with your work!!

Baby Porter

Our experience working with Jake and AJ from the Hauser Design Group was nothing short of fantastic. The development work we requested was completed exactly as we'd specified, and was turned around very quickly. We would have no hesitation in recommending their work to other business owners looking to set up or improve their Shopify website.

San Francisco Wine School

The folks at Hauser Design Group were great to work with. I'm a web-designer and needed some help with figuring out some customizations in shopify working with mobile/responsiveness/better layout. AJ got back to me within 24 hours after my initial email request. Was incredibly timely in all communication, getting the work done before their estimated completion time, and even looked into a more advanced issue for me without charging.

As a full-time freelancer, I know there are a lot of options out there, and it's hard to work with good folks who are reasonably priced and have great response times. I feel super lucky to have found HDG!

They're officially my go to people for all future work and I'm looking forward to working with them again. I'd recommend contacting them directly through their website ( I didn't have much luck hearing back from any developers when I contacted them using the shopify contact form.

Thanks so much AJ & Jacob! Much appreciated!!

Subtle Additions

The store is coming along nicely, but the best part is that they are helping me develop my ENTIRE business - not just my website. I am very excited to see where this thing takes us this year.

-Jennifer H.


The Hauser Design Group has taken our product and this project by the horns and has far exceeded our expectations! We will continue doing business with them.


This has been a battle - and AJ has been with us every step of the way. Things are really looking up this year, and we can't wait to see what happens. We highly recommend their work.
-B & G at Clear.Water.Sky. Tools

Awesome company to work with!

Pub Life

10 our of 10... because they are AWESOME!!

The LMK Technologies Online Catalog

AJ has worked with us for months, taking Shopify and first allowing us to use it as a quote-generation tool for our sales team (thus eliminating our Excel spreadsheets) - while continuing to develop the public storefront "behind the scenes". He has been extremely accommodating and helped us turn a big problem into a working tool that increased revenue across the board. Highly recommended.

Birthing From Within

Aj, Jacob, and crew were great! After a very unpleasant and disappointing experience with another "Shopify Expert," we are thrilled with the Hauser Design Group's attention to detail, customer focus, sense of humor, and good prompt work. We will be using them again!

Robart Manufacturing

The Hauser Design Group did a great job listening to our needs and providing feedback when appropriate. Our project was broken into three phases with time frames given for each phase. AJ and his team met the time frames and provided additional feedback along the timeline of project. Also, his quoted hours were not exceeded thus avoiding any uncomfortable conversations about project overruns. I will continue to use The Hauser Design Group in the future and I would have no issues referring this firm to other business associates.


Trying to find someone to help you with your Shopify site may seem a bit overwhelming with all the different companies out there. But I must say The Hauser Design Group did a fantastic job! AJ does his homework before he talks with you. Very personable and quick to respond to emails at ANY time. VERY easy to work with, and great ideas! If you allow them to quote your project, you will most likely be as impressed as I was with the details, comprehensive ideas & line items on the Proposal. Hauser will be doing all my future work!


About six months ago I scrolled through these Shopify Expert reviews just as you are now and decided to pursue The Hauser Design Group for a couple of reasons. 1) AJ likes to grill which seemed human and down to Earth 2) AJ claimed to get his hands dirty with start-ups, a saint like quality in my opinion, and 3) AJ's portfolio showed the ability to take service oriented ideas and turn them into products, which was exactly what I was looking for. I assumed I would never find a perfect fit on my first attempt to hire a Shopify freelancer. I was wrong.

AJ Hauser "held" my hand as emails flowed back and forth, attempting to develop a brand, strategize, and launch an ecommerce platform. AJ was patient, very kind, and gave me opinions that I truly valued. His pricing was reasonable and his new client onboarding process was organized.

The end result is and he continues to amaze me by accommodating every request I make. I am a non-techie non-arty person just like you. I understood the business side of things, so let me give you a wholehearted YES! to working with AJ. Send him an email right now and get the ball rolling, you will be happy you did.

AJ Hauser is professional, creative, thorough, supportive, encouraging, patient. Absolutely excellent!!! He challenged me to think about what my goals were without "telling me" what to do. His insight is refreshing & he dealt with every change, edit, different idea I came up with. I could not be more pleased!!! The website looks even better than I had imagined or hoped for.
